Womb Settee

Dimensioned elevation and plan drawings of the Womb Settee with height, length and depth measurements

The Womb Settee was formed by application of foam molded over a fiberglass shell. It also features a steel base finished with polished chrome. This technique allowed for a single-piece seat shell that supported the natural posture of the human body when seated. Designed by Eero Saarinen in 1948, the Womb Settee was his response to the prominence of more robust chairs of the time.

The Womb Settee has an overall height of 35.5” (90 cm), length of 62.25” (158 cm), and depth of 34” (86 cm). The seat height of the Womb Settee is set at 16” (41 cm) with arm heights of 20.5” (52 cm).

A settee, with a smaller and more elegant profile than a sofa, is an upholstered type of seating meant for two to three individuals. With origins dating back to 17th century Europe, the settee originally resembled a chaise lounge chair before smaller arm rests were added on both sides.
